The Park Pass Systems brings a major change to the Disney ticket system. For years, the Park Hopper has been a staple in the Disney ticket system. Disney’s Park Hopper allowed Disney guests to visit more than one park on any given day. The Park Hopper gave guests freedom and many guests purchased this option specifically for this freedom.

Until further notice, you can not Park Hop. With the Park Pass System, you will only be allowed to select one park per day. This is the only park you can visit on that given day. 

Disney plans to use this Park Pass System for the foreseeable future. As of now, there are rumors Disney plans to use this system through at least September 2021. Only time will tell how long the Disney Park Pass System will be in place.

You may have heard that the first day of the Disney Park Pass System was filled with issues and the Park Pass site kept crashing. But since the first day, the Park Reservation System has been consistently available for guests to reserve their park days and no major issues have been reported. In true Disney form, the website experienced issues on the first day but has been working smoothly ever since. 

Travel organizer

Make sure to pack efficiently for your next vacation. Disney hotel rooms don’t have a ton of extra space so travel hangers are great for keeping your toiletries organized. 

If your planning on visit Walt Disney World anytime soon, make sure to get familiar with the Disney Park Pass System and the  My Disney Experience site. Both will be apart of your Disney vacation for the foreseeable future!
